If there's one food that I can eat all day every day, it is the potato. Whether mashed, boiled, roasted or fried, I just love potatoes and we look for every opportunity to have them, especially for breakfast. 

It's a bit sad that the prices of potatoes have increased over the past couple of days, I heard it was as a result of floods that swept away a large portion of the crop ...

I've been munching on these cookies for the past couple of days and I just can't get enough of them! I think they are among the best cookies I've ever baked! They are so smooth and I like the sweet surprise with each bite as a result of the raisins in them! What better way to combine oatmeal than with coconut and raisins!

It was initially a gluten-free recipe but I only ...

You can never go wrong with bananas in your pastries or energy drinks and one of the most amazing things I enjoy making with bananas other than the Healthy Banana and Oat pancake is making a banana bread.

For starters, I added cinnamon and nutmeg which gives the bread such a rich flavour.

Ripe bananas are generally sweet and I ...

Let me clear the air, my paps is an accountant by profession, a real estate agent by proxy and a farmer by choice :-D! Oh… and a really good father ...

I am reminded of a time my father used to buy oats when we were younger and he'd make oat porridge for the whole family, then have his on a plate! I used to be fascinated as to how one could take porridge from a plate, and I used to insist that my mother serve mine on a plate too. The culture in which my parents created in our home as a child, made ...

For starters, Crepes (pronounced Kreps) is the French word for Pancakes! Shocked? Don’t be :-).

Every country has its own unique way of making pancakes and all vary depending on the culture of the people. Our country was colonised by the British Empire, hence, we mostly make the English pancakes that differ slightly from crepes. I think it's because of the many marriage alliances that happened between the English and the French. Anyway, the ...
